POTW #605-Aug. 15-29, 2020
Posted By: smf, 08-23-2020, 01:31 PM

Welcome to the 605th edition of Pictures of the Week (POTW), covering the period 15-29 August 2020. Let's see what you have been shooting.

POTW is a great spot to show off six or fewer shots you take or are editing within the thread's date range.
To post your great photos, just hit reply and attach away. Feel free to start immediately.

Please:

• consider including in your post any special circumstances or tips on technique or equipment which might be interesting to others.

• identify your camera and lens if that information is easily available to you.

And please invite other Pentaxians to join us.

Some rules:
1) No theme, just post your favorite pix
2) Six or fewer images per person per thread to prevent thread bloat
3) Any Pentax, Ricoh or Samsung camera, film or digital

The current host will invite a new host via Private Message (PM), but if you are interested and willing to host POTW, please send me a PM, before I contact others.

Thanks very much to all previous hosts and to people who have posted images!

I have one bw and one color with two different cameras

sooc jpeg shots w/ the gr iii

high contast bw


positive, sunset after the storm, from my window


and a couple of shots from last week w/ the K1ii and FA 43

again sooc; it's not as flexible as the GR bw options, but I still like BW with max contrast on this camera



I worked a bit in darktable to get a flat saturated look with this one, what attracted me was the cool colors on the sidewalk and the warm colors in the background, and then I included the cliche leaves framing the top to balance it out

My FA43 has become my most-favored lens since I got it last summer. The K1ii and FA43 are a fantastic match. And I love your sooc B&W!

I haven't taken many photos lately. This is from a grocery shopping excursion last weekend (also the K1ii / FA43 combo!):

It's a bit early for autumn here in Arkansas, but some of the understory trees are showing a little color already.
